ALEXANDER PROVIDES INJURY UPDATE PRE-POSH TRIP

21 November 2016

Manager Graham Alexander says he will have a similar squad to select from for Tuesday night’s trip to Peterborough United.

No fresh injury problems were reported in his pre-match briefing with the media, though there may be a temptation to freshen up the side that defeated Oldham Athletic 1-0 as they prepare for the second game of three in a week.

“It will be pretty much the same squad. It’s down to us whether we make any alterations on Tuesday, as we look to keep the standards high and the fitness levels up,” Alexander told The Iron PlayerHD.

“Whichever team we put out though we feel we can win the game. Tuesday is no different. The players are in good form mentally and feeling confident about themselves.

“It’s providing results for us so we need to make sure we continue that.”

The game at the ABAX Stadium will likely come too soon for Paddy Madden, who was rested for Saturday’s match as a precaution following a hamstring worry in the game at Coventry City a week earlier.

“Paddy did a little bit of training on Monday morning so we’ll see how he is afterwards,” said Alexander.

“If we can try and get him back for the weekend (against Oxford at Glanford Park), it’ll be a massive bonus and we’ll take it from there.

“Harry Toffolo has been training now for a few days. He’s still not done a full week yet but we’re hoping he’ll be available by the weekend as well.

“He’s looked decent in training and the more competitive squad we can have the better because we have a fantastic group of players who are highly motivated and pushing each other.

“There are players such as Jamie Ness for instance who can’t get on the bench at the moment. He’s a fantastic player who is training like a demon, he’s been doing ever so well but that’s an indication of how well the other players are playing and training, to keep a player like that out of the 18 for the moment.”
